360 3D VR Camera

Challenge: Make streaming live events in 4K 360 3D to any VR headset a fast, simple, easy process. Lens alignment, electronic board design and heat management presented significant challenges.

Insight: The camera records live events using an innovative array of 16 lenses in a compact body significantly smaller than others. Onboard electronics stitch images and produce smooth 4K 360 streaming straight from the camera. Complex computational fluid dynamics analysis was required to design for efficient heat management.

Result: Hardware designers and engineers at Outerspace developed robust solutions for lens alignment and thermal management and prepared the camera for full production from early conceptual designs.
